Audi R8 LMS GT2 Coming to Assetto Corsa Competizione


Assetto Corsa Competizione GT2 Pack DLC: Audi R8 LMS GT2 Revealed

2024 is set to be a monumental year for Assetto Corsa fans. The yet-to-be-announced Assetto Corsa 2 is slated for a Summer 2024 release, but that doesn’t mean Assetto Corsa Competizione will be abandoned. Starting the year with a bang, next month will see the release of the much-anticipated Assetto Corsa Competizione GT2 Pack DLC.

After confirming the Porsche 935 and Porsche 911 GT2 RS CS EVO Kit last week, Kunos Simulazioni has revealed a third car coming in the GT2 Pack.

Joining the two Porsches is the new Audi R8 LMS GT2. With a 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 producing 640 hp, the R8 LMS GT2 is the most powerful customer race car Audi Sport has ever built.

Compared to the production R8, the LMS GT2 boasts a wider body, a new front bumper, a prominent roof scoop, and an enormous rear wing to keep the car glued to the track.

When is the Assetto Corsa Competizione GT2 Pack coming out?

Kunos Simulazioni has yet to confirm an exact release date, but the Assetto Corsa Competizione GT2 Pack is set to arrive sometime on PC in January 2024. There's no word on a console release yet, but ACC DLC packs usually arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S a few months later.

Three cars are confirmed so far, but the DLC will presumably include the full GT2 class lineup from Porsche, Audi, KTM, Lamborghini, Brabham, Mercedes-AMG, and Maserati.

That’s not all Assetto Corsa Competizione players have to look forward to in 2024 either. After years of waiting, one of the most requested circuits will join ACC’s track list next year: the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Nicknamed The Green Hell, the Nordschleife is one of the most difficult race tracks in the world.

Coinciding with the 2024 Nurburgring 24 Hours race, the Nurburgring Nordschleife is coming to ACC in spring 2024 as part of the Season 2024 GT World Challenge DLC pack.
